I have an old Lumicon drive corrector and I was wondering if it would be possible to modify it for autoguiding with my mount which does not have an st4 port. I have seen some items from shoestring astronomy that might work:

Attached are some pictures of my drive corrector. Sorry for the poor quality of some of them.

Hi Joe,
I would repost this in the diy forum. I'm sure you'll get some good advice.
